So why did you wrote an install guide for Debian if there are packages to
use for the people who are lazy? ;-)

So the simple advice is: Replace the paragraphs of your guide to use the
packages. This might shorten your time to write and the time for users
to install - at least this was the purpose why I builded these packages.

As I said: Just try the packages first, upgrade later to CVS. IMHO this should
be the smoothest path to a reasonable installation (but I might be wrong).

I have to admit that databases are such a serious issue that I do not
use the version in unstable if I do not have a *very* good reason to
do so. I know from the mailing list that a major rewrite of packaging
stuff was done to enable running different versions of PostgreSQL on
the same machine. This is not yet tested very much. Moreover before
I would install such an important package I would check
for RC bugs. There is one serious bug stated and you might read the
discussion of this and decide whether you might be able to cope with this

I can't comment on this. I have a different problem: Your description for
checking out CVS contained upload of SSH-key for people who have a savannah
account. I do not have any account and currently see no relevance to
create one. Unfortunately annonymus CVS does not (yet) seem to work
again. Or did I missed something?
